The property is located on a purpose-built retirement development for the over 55s. Management services are provided by Cognatum Estates, a not-for-profit organisation and one of the UK's leading companies in retirement housing.

Ashcombe Court sits within a quiet enclave close to the town centre, in the grounds of an attractive Regency building, Summerlands House, which has been transformed into apartments. The main entrance is through an archway in a finely-proportioned building of Ham stone, with stone pilasters surmounted by a cupola. Mellow honey-coloured stone cottages and apartments front onto two gently-sloping lawned courtyards, with Summerlands House at the top approached by an elegant flight of steps.

Ilminster is a busy market town and the streets still follow the medieval pattern with the market square and colonnaded market house at its centre. It has a good range of shops, supermarkets, banks, pubs and restaurants. Cultural opportunities also abound, with concerts, plays and events at the arts centre and theatre, and a twice-daily bus offers an easy trip to London. The splendid perpendicular Minster Church is the glory of the town and one of the most magnificent in the country. Taunton, the county town of Somerset with its history stretching back to Saxon times, is just 13 miles from the estate, and a drive of less than 15 minutes brings you to the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Cognatum Estates maintains, repairs and insures all the buildings, arranges the window cleaning and refuse collection and tends to the gardens and grounds thereby freeing owners and residents from these responsibilities. There is a personal alarm system in each property and resident estate managers are on hand to provide support and help when needed, making this an ideal 'Lock Up & Leave' property. There is also a guest suite which provides comfortable accommodation for family and friends.

The cost of providing these services is shared equally between all properties. There are no restrictions on owning a property except that one resident must be over 55 years of age.

150 year lease (from 1990). No ground rent.
